Re: Gilera Pacar

Impressive.....someone has waaaaay too much time on their hands.... :D I wonder at the longevity of that plastic alternator drive gear running at crankshaft speed on the 4 cyl. I know some single cylinder Gilera's used a plastic camshaft gear but in that case running at half crank speed. Still, the ...

Fork reconditioning ?

Just wondering if anyone has any experience with fork reconditioning, particularly the section at the top of the slider. The 150 Autostrada I have is particularly bad in this area (wear, rust, pitting). A set of forks I've picked up for the 202 also needs reconditioning. Attached are pictures of one...

Re: 202 parts wanted

Thanks - I keep an eye on kijiji as well as subito. Not much there in terms of what I need but I also haven't found a way to register there from outside Italy, so that makes it a bit hard. I was hoping someone here might have pointers to 'niche' suppliers.....specialist wreckers/breakers in early Gi...

202 parts wanted

I've managed to track down quite a few parts to restore the 202 inc a complete front end and front wheel, but I still need the parts shown in the attached photo. Specifically: A - rear mudguard B - chainguard C - [I think I've tracked down a pair of these 'fairings'....stay tuned] D - Twist on fuel ...

150 5v Autostrada rear fende/mudguard

Any leads on a 150 Autostrada rear mudguard would be appreciated. The one on the bike I have is original but has had a number of very poor quality repairs attempted. I keep an eye on ebay.it, plus I've also been in touch with Bob Wright and Susanne Hammer but no luck so far. Photo of what good one l...

Re: Gilera 150 Autostrada.....also needs lots of work

Thanks (again) Nozem for your comments and the very useful information. The photo of the 150 is interesting as it shows what appears to be an air filter assembly, but other photos of 150 Autostrada's I've seen show the carb with just a velocity stack or trumpet.....no air filter. Perhaps different m...

Re: Gilera 202 needs work (lots.....)

Thanks Nozem and Geert for your replies, greatly appreciated. Nozem - I think you are right.....apart from the headlight, the entire front end of the bike is from something else and it is probably merely coincidence that the front rim is similar to the rear. Apart from that, the rear mudguard is als...

Gilera 150 Autostrada.....also needs lots of work

In a similar way to my 202 thread, this thread will be about the 150 Autostrada discussed in this thread: http://gileraclub.de/viewtopic.php?f=5&t=8552 This is the beast itself: Gilera8.JPG engine # 104-7639 frame # 104-7639 These numbers perhaps suggest quite late production - 1970/1971 ?? Seat, mu...

Gilera 202 needs work (lots.....)

Following on from this thread: http://gileraclub.de/viewtopic.php?f=5&t=8552 I decided to start a separate thread on each of these bikes as otherwise it's going to get confusing. It will take time, but I intend restoring the 202 to 'original' condition...or reasonably close. The question is...what i...

Re: welche Gileras sind das?

First post - thanks to all those that helped with these Gilera's, but particularly Joachim for being the go-between while my board registration went through. I've ended up buying these bikes as they were really quite cheap and are also rare in Australia.....well certainly I've never seen anything li...
